Open Bronze Training and Assessed Restricted Spaces Expedition (Additional Needs)


Tuesday 23 August to Thursday 25 August 2022 - maximum 14 spaces



Full payment is required at time of booking.

Based at Stubbington Study Centre, Hampshire Outdoors are offering a ‘Restricted Spaces’ DofE Bronze expedition for young people within Hampshire aged 14-18 years old with Additional Needs.

A ‘Restricted Spaces’ expedition focuses more on teambuilding, discovery and exploration over the physical challenge. This would be suitable for young people with a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.

We are also combining this expedition with the John Muir Discovery Award. Some activities on offer will be: rock pooling, creating bird feeders and bug hotels, cooking, badger watching… a provisional programme will be available in March 2022.

Open Bronze Expedition Additional Needs Information Booklet

Following the Government's roadmap, this expedition should be a residential (camping). However, this depends on the Government roadmap out of COVID going to plan. Participants are welcomed to go home of an evening and return the following morning. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide overnight indoor accommodation.

This expedition is open to participants within Hampshire only. There will also be a virtual meeting where you can ask any questions a month before this expedition, but please feel free to email dofe@hants.gov.uk should you have any questions before hand.
